One Question Interviews: Soul Asylum

Dave Pirnier (Soul Asylum – vocals)

SPB: Who is your favorite musician you’ve discovered in New Orleans?

Pirnier: Henry Butler first comes to mind. I saw him for the first time at the Funky Butt and he was playing the midnight to 4am slot. Seeing that he is blind, I was able to sorta stick my head in his grand piano and listen without him even knowing I was there and made going to his gigs a ritual. There are so many amazing musicians in New Orleans, but it was pretty much the street parades and Henry's piano playing that ultimately made move there. We eventually became friends and he came out to LA to do some sessions with us. I haven't seen him in a while as he moved away after Katrina, but I really miss him being in New Orleans.
